I’ll be My Own Number One

There are days when you wake up and have to be like David and encourage yourself. Not3d89edafa9dd80de939756405b9cb9a9
because you don’t have an awesome other half that listens to you whine, encourages and holds you up when you are feeling down and deflated. No matter how you try to shake it you see evidence of the irritation(s) everywhere you look. Each sign making the tear in the irk fabric larger and larger until its a deep, dark, empty hole.No, it’s not a lack of faith in God or low self-esteem. Just being human leave us open to periods in life where we feel stuck spinning in a hamster wheel of under-appreciation. You are dismissively undervalued and whining turns into just flat-out being pissed-off about all of it. The biiiible saaaaayyyysss (my preacher friends appreciate and hear the drawl/hiss) in  1 Samuel 30:6 King James Version (KJV) – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

Whatever the reason for the distress in your life let me share one of my favorite encouragements from the book of Chrisette (Michele – Let Freedom Reign) that I loop in my headphones to remind me of my stature, standing and status that the situation/person/offender doesn’t recognize, but I know it has to be true –  because I am fearfully & wonderfully made (from the book of Psalms 139:14).


 

NUMBER ONE

I wake up in the morning – Ready to get it on i_am_awesome_mouse_pad-rf9318618bbbe4de1bbf1e1e9691706fe_x74vi_8byvr_512
I’m going ’bout my business – Watch me while I go
It’s all about me (No it’s not about you)
I got to believe (I got to get through)
I gotta do me (I’m good on my own)
The feeling’s so free (It’s making me strong, oh oh)I can’t run out of time here – I won’t get left behind
‘Cause I was built to rise here – So I’m staying on my grind

(I love what I do and I’m doing just fine)
My destiny is calling – And it won’t pass me by
I’ma do me for me  – Watch me while I go succeed, ooohI’ll be my one and only 

One and only
I’ll be my own number one
I’ll be my number one
I’ll put me first, like you don’t do
No second place, No number two
There’s only room for one
I’ll be my number one
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohWhen nine to five is over – I’m working on my frame
I got to stay in shape now – No half stepping in my lane
I’m so fly (I’m a beautiful queen)
I’m going for the sky (It’s within my reach)
Love me or leave me (Hate me or truce me)
I’ma survive (Even if you lose me)
Yeah (oh)

You had so many chances – To be on my side
Through root of circumstances – You threw in at fly (I’ve been through fire And wind and rain)
I know that I’ma lose it – But I won’t go insane
Pressing on with all my might – I can see the end in sight

I’ll be my one and onlychampion-quote_large
One and only ….

I’m running and I’m running
(Ohohoh, ohohoh, oh, oh)
I won’t be beat, I want this
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Ohohoh, oh oh)
I am a champion
There’s only room for one
Victory is all I’ll see
So no dream, it’s a reality

I’ll be my one and only
One and only ….(repeat 3xs)
Now smile at your Number One in the mirror, your best champion – throw your head back UnderHerBrim_Blogand sang from your diaphragm like no one is listening. Declare to the world and yourself  I will be my one and only one and only I’ll be my OWN number one. You know you are not in this alone (check Romans 8:31) as you face the battles in the ring of this life Under Your Brim
